What is a Family Violence Intervention Order (FVIO)?
A FVIO is a type of intervention order designed to protect family members from each other. In other states and territories, it may be known as a domestic violence order (DVO), protection order, family violence order (FVO), or violence restraining order (VRO). Shane McClure acts and appears on behalf of both applicants and respondents in all FVIO applications and hearings.
Who is protected by a FVIO?
In Victoria, family members are defined as people who share an intimate personal relationship, including married, de facto, or domestic partners, parents and children (including step-children), relatives by birth, marriage, or adoption, and people who are treated like a family member, such as a carer, guardian, or someone related to you within the cultural family structure. The law also protects a person from anyone who was a family member in the past, including ex-partners.
What is Family Violence?
Family violence is harmful behavior used by a person to control, threaten, force, or dominate a family member through fear. This includes physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, financial or economic abuse, controlling behavior, and property damage. If a child hears, sees, or is around family violence in any way, they are also covered by the law.
